Good-bye Dear Prophet
Being on the east coast I was already asleep when my dad called to tell us Pres. Hinckley had passed away. Joey got up to answer the phone and woke me up to tell me when he came back to bed. I was actually relieved for our dear Prophet when I heard the news, though sad for myself. I had recently felt that he would pass on soon, though I'm not sure why. I wasn't surprised then when Joey told me the news and immediately felt a sense of peace, for myself, and Pres. Hinckley. I'm sure he was joyously reunited with his wife Marjorie who passed away in 2004! I am grateful for his love for the members of the church and the many sacrifices I'm sure he made as leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He greatly impacted my life as a teenager and young adult, I will miss his great counsel and quick wit. Thank-you President Hinckley!
